Wine bottle and a glass of wine

ELENA WALCH “Castel Ringberg” Sauvignon 2020

(Alto Adige, Italy) $25

Raciness. Crispness. Precision. Complexity. Bright flavors. Around this office, a wine that checks all those boxes, is something we love to drink. And the Elena Walch Sauvignon from Italy’s cool mountainous northern province of Alto Adige is a perfect example.  Unlike many Sauvignon Blancs, it’s not “green,” but instead its complex flavors are layered with notes of minerals, dried sage, and something tangy like pink grapefruit. All of this—for $5 a glass! Elena Walch is considered one of the top small producers of northern Italy, and this wine reveals why. (13.5% abv)
